Leadership qualities are characteristics emphasized by the western world. Leadership is oftentimes misunderstood to encompass politics or business interests, but is actually a trait that every successful student must develop and perfect. Leadership is a critical ability that will help open doors, not only in institutions of higher learning but throughout society, in general. A leader is one who knows the way, goes the way and shoes the way. Accordingly, Meihua School has established a junior leadership project, including self-assessment, personal relationship, coaching skills, teamwork and managing abilities.
Educational philosophy in America teaches that “art can inspire the mind.” Meihua School features high-level theatre performances each year, including music, art, video production, literature, history, etc. Children are assigned to different roles in each performance, including choreography, music production, etc. When children direct and create a show, they are responsible for script writing, directing and characters’ analysis, which greatly encourages the development of confidence and the establishment of individuality.
The school offers a variety of physical education choices to students, including golf and fencing, and has established a career-development pathway. These innovations allow students to specialize in a particular field, to maintain an excellent academic record and to be a well-rounded individual. The school provides special lessons for students to ensure quality time for both their training and school work.
Meihua school introduces the thesis system in the 11th grade, which begins with short essays and culminates with a 25-page dissertation. The program, which is generally only featured in master’s degree-level courses, encourages students to choose their area of interests and to conduct research abroad to complete their thesis.
The school emphasizes and develops the student’s writing abilities, and many of the courses include advanced writing content to better prepare the student to tackle the thesis requirement. Because of this thesis system and the abundant writing assignments, students who graduate from our program have a much better chance of being accepted by a major university throughout America, Canada, Great Britain, Australia and throughout the world.
